I Miss Texas

    Why Did We Move?

    I lived in Texas most my life. I grew up there. Someday I will go back, but now I live in Wisconsin. Someday, I'll refer to it as home, but Texas will always be the best home in the world. Whenever I hear a song, or see a picture, that reminds me of Texas, I start bawling.

    There Is No Place Like Texas

    My husband is in the military and we just moved from San Antonio to the Baltimore area in Maryland. I miss the southern hospitality and the yummy Tex-Mex food. The people here are cold and rude. I am having such a hard time adjusting..

    Native Houstonian

    When we were living in Central Florida, I really missed my hometown of Houston, badly.  Having left when I was six months pregnant was, at first, an exciting venture.  But, after our son was born, I realized how very lonely I was, for my friends and even my crazy family...

    How I Miss Texas

    I was born in Louisiana near the border with Texas, but before I was a year old, we moved to Texas. First it was near Plano, but I've lived all over the Dallas area. I moved to Knoxville because I got a great deal on tuition at UT (the other one). But I am still an Aggie at heart...

    In A Foreign Land

    moved to denver thinking it would be similar to Austin...  It's not even a close 2nd.  The mountains are beautiful, but the food is sorely lacking here.  LODO is full of cheese balls and there are no decent lakes to be found.  I wouldn't advise swimming in the...

    It's Warm There

    "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible." As far as I know, Texas is the only state with its own Pledge of Allegiance. Hank Hill is my hero.
